The collapsible kitchen funnel is a simple, functional and practical object, which only takes up space when it's in use. The material is flexible enough to be folded again and again, hard enough to keep its shape and durable enough to resist cold as well as hot temperatures. Story of the design starts from the designer Boje Estermann´s kitchen where he was one day in need of a funnel. Boje deliberately had not bought one because funnels take up a lot of space due to the non-flexible form. Nevertheless the funnel is an important part of the daily household and the core problem for Boje was lack of kitchen space combined with an inflexible form. Boje started to think of the possible ways to designing a flexible tunnel when he suddenly thought of his old reflex camera, which had a soft sunscreen, which folded out like an accordion when the sun got too strong. The unique quality of the sunscreen was clearly that it only took up space when in use - this way the seed to the collapsible funnel was sown. Funnel is awarded with following design prizes: Formex Priset 2004, Sweden, DesignPlus 2005, Germany, Formland Prisen 2005, Denmark, Red dot Design A Award 2005, Germany, Good Design A Award 2005, USA.
